Facebook Scam Warning

Via ClickOrlando we learn of a new scam that’s promising ‘secrets of Disney’s Animation’ on a new facebook page. But it’s really a clever copy designed to open up your computer to malware and viral software.

If you’re ever in doubt, I recommend checking google, snopes.com, and making sure the URL you’re clicking actually goes to a website you’re familiar with and not just an IP address. Hover your cursor over the link and if it runs longer than the page, chances are it’s not legit.

    I went to snopes.com and there’s no mention of this. Did you check snopes? Can you post the url?

    I have a good number of friends that have been suckered into this… if they really wanted to know any “Disney secrets,” they should have just asked me! :D Haha
